Maarten
Filius

Architect

In a time of extreme fast developments, increasing mobility and digitalized communication, people are looking for places to slow down. Places which connect you to the time and location of the moment, where the local character and atmosphere can be experienced. Places where people connect and get out of their daily rush and habits. I believe with architecture we can provide people these places. Finding the trigger to connect people with their environment is my focus.

Junior Architect

I'm focused on the detail, trying to find the right balance between technique and architectural harmony. My goal is to deliver unique experiences turning ideas into reality. Like a painter, I can do it using different shapes, materials and details depending on the local twist.

Suprising people, asking the unconvenient questions, being the catalyst in design processes is my daily business. Creating concepts for places, so shared interests and ambitions are strenghtning eachother. My background and education in creative project development makes me a tourist in the architectural world. It enables me to think from a new role to create concepts which are truly integral. Rediscover the traditions of architects. Starting in my younger years family and friends encouraged me to exploit my sketching abilities. In my current role as concept developer, I use it to map and structure clients and users minds. A small sketch says more then thousand words.

Posthuma

Technical Modeller

Improving quality of life, making things easier and more fun with less investment needed. These, I believe, are some of the fundamental goals that people across the world share. I find pride and joy in making these goals achievable. In my job as technical modeller I strive to help others attain these goals by being the link between designer and builder. By improving my own knowledge and skills I am able to provide designers, builders and users a technical solution to their aesthetical vision. Seeing the vision of the designer becoming reality, because of the engineering that makes it possible, is a great reward for me as technical modeller. Aside my main job I’m very much drawn to computer technology and all possibilities it provides in our field of business. By learning about these possibilities I’m able to support my colleges in their day to day usage of IT assets.

Junior Architect

I’m attracted to discover people feelings and I believe in the incredible power of Architecture to generate emotions. The light and its relation with time, colors and materials, shapes and details are the tools we have to create an experience. By using them rightly it’s possible to connect people and create energy. My sensitive and curious mind made me an architect, my attention to everyday life guides me to design spaces in a responsible way.

Groenendaal

Interior Architect

As an inquisitive and motivated person, I try to look for creative solutions by making conscious choices with the focus on developing ideas by doing research. I have a strong affinity for materials. In my projects I try to look for the right use of materials that suits on various aspects; budget, look&feel, sustainability and use.

Lorenzo
Renzi

Junior Architect

Creating spaces, designing new experiences and improve everyday's people life is the reason why I became an architect, making it possible is the reason why I studied engineering. I strongly believe in architecture and design as a way to save our planet and make it a better place for everyone, today and in the future. By taking care of every aspect from the overall concept to the very small detail, my job is to provide a better environment for people to live, work, and enjoy their lives.

Rietveld

Office manager

When I started working at APTO it was my job to create order in the creative chaos. Enable people to do their work. Nowadays I'm also a little part of the creative when working in PR. The enthusiasm for new ideas by my colleagues and their dedication to realize them makes my blood run faster (yeah, really!). This motivates me to innovate our office and work systems. My own goals at APTO are continuing to create peace, but most importantly, make everyone feel at "home" at APTO.

The opportunity to learn is a great privilege. It is also an obligation if you truly want to exploit your potential. In APTO learning is one of the most important elements in the process of designing. From doing research about a project location, through finding new materials and ecological solutions till brainstorming with our team - we learn, we explore, we look and we find. Constant exchange of ideas in our melting pot of different cultures, backgrounds and education systems creates a perfect environment for personal development and that is why I go to APTO every day.

Rodrigo M.
Weinbaum

Junior Architect

Crazy in love with creativity and good ideas; Working hard to help those ideas become true. From my point of view, architecture is about the way we experience places. It´s about the context in which our lives develop. As an architect, I like experimenting with concepts, mixing, twisting and simplifying them. Connecting the dots towards a final simple solution. Always trying to identify the major threats of the assignment to turn them into the greatest features of the project. In conjunction with design, I find in painting my passion, a world where I can feel, discover and express myself.
